International Leadership and Managing Transcultural Conflict

when 6 July 2015 - 10 July 2015
duration 1 week
credits 2 ECTS
fee EUR 675

The interactive course gives an overview of different theories on (business) leadership, the influence of globalization and culture, and leadership conflicts that might arise in an international setting. In a globalized world management and leadership become more internationally oriented too. The different cultures around the globe do not have one universal management style and firms expanding into new geographical areas do not always realize this.

Our colleagues from Rhodes University, South Africa will focus on questions like:
- Can management from one part of the world resolve conflicts that arise in other regions?
- Does global leadership really exist or is it a myth?
- What does African - Ubuntu - management mean?
- What does it take to become a manager of the future?
